Continuation fees, writing-up and resubmission fees
Where a student enters their fourth year (full time) or eighth year (part time) of study and are still acquiring new data they are classified as 'continuing students' and are required to pay an amount equivalent to the annual fee. The continuation fee is due upon re-registration.
Where a student enters their fourth year (full time) or eighth year (part time) of study and is no longer engaged in the acquisition of new data and is predominantly concentrating on writing up their thesis prior to submission they will be classified as writing up students. A writing up student must be in a position to submit their thesis within 12 months, or by their thesis submission date, whichever is sooner.
The write-up fee is available for a maximum of one year. Regardless of mode of study, should the student fail to submit their thesis within the ‘write-up year’ they will become liable for any continuation fee should they be granted an extension to registration.
The supervisor will need to formally confirm to the Research Degrees Team when a student should be classified as writing up.
The writing-up fee is invoiced halfway through the year.
Where a student is required following the final examination to resubmit their thesis for re-examination a fee will apply. The charge is made to cover costs of re-examination and additional supervision.
